foodproof® Listeria plus L. monocytogenes Detection LyoKit
With the foodproof® Listeria plus L. monocytogenes Detection LyoKit, BIOTECON Diagnostics has launched the first lyophilized multiplex real-time PCR kit in the market that includes the detection of Listeria monocytogenes and all the food relevant Listeria species: L. innocua, L. welshimeri, L. ivanovii, L. seeligeri, and L. marthii in a single reaction.
The test is designed for fast, accurate testing of all varieties of food, raw materials and environmental samples.
To shorten the enrichment time, BIOTECON Diagnostics has internally validated ONE Broth-Listeria, a rapid enrichment broth from a leading media supplier. When using this broth, the safe detection of Listeria monocytogenes and the food relevant Listeria species is now possible in less than 24 h.
To complete the portfolio, BIOTECON Diagnostics also provides several optimized DNA-extraction kits for different needs and throughputs. This includes the foodproof StarPrep Two Kit for manual extraction at low to medium testing numbers, the foodproof StarPrep Two 8-Strip Kit for high-throughput manual DNA-extraction in deep-well plates using 8-channel pipettes or the foodproof Magnetic Preparation Kit II for fully automated DNA extraction and PCR set-up with the unique foodproof RoboPrep Fusion.
All kits, including the rapid enrichment broth and the ISO reference broth, half-Fraser, are currently in the process of ISO 16140 validation by NordVal. This validation will be accomplished with a broad variety of food categories including dairy, meats, fruits & vegetables, fish & seafood, frozen & ready to eat foods and environmental samples.
